America’s veterans are in crisis.
VA provides Veterans, Servicemembers, and their families with $1.3 trillion
in insurance coverage each year. VA also offers a variety of life insurance options
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers several benefits for the children of veterans:
(1) education benefits — servicemembers may transfer the GI Bill to their dependent
children before leaving service; (2) health care — CHAMPVA provides coverage to eligible
dependent children; (3) life insurance — family coverage is available to members insured under Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI); and (4) memorial benefits — minor or unmarried adult children may be eligible for burial in a VA national cemetery. Also, specific benefits are available for children of servicemembers who died or were seriously injured in the line of duty.

VA Disability - When the initial decision finds no "nexus"
What is the "nexus" and why is it important?
With each passing month, Dan’s debt grows. The government is adding a 6 percent compound
interest rate on the unpaid premiums, meaning the total has grown by more $570 since February.
“I live under their power,” Dan says. “Another garnishment that I have no control over.”
n a crushing blow to tens of thousands of veterans who say they were made ill by the use
of open burn pits, dozens of lawsuits against a military contractor in charge of the waste disposal
method will not move forward after a recent appellate court ruling. A three-judge panel of the 4th
Circuit Court of Appeals agreed on Wednesday with a federal judge in Maryland, who last
year threw out the lawsuits brought against KBR, a former Halliburton Corp. subsidiary.
Disability Benefits Questionnaires
Every claim will generate some form or fashion of C & P exam. The C & P exam is as
unavoidable as death and taxes. Veterans dread the C & P exam because it's so often
wrong. You can control the situation...have a DBQ done by a disability expert! Talk with
Dr. Bash today about getting your DBQ signed off by an expert with years of experience.
Frequently veterans will ask if we provide counseling services.
In response to this, Dr. Valette will be accepting a few veteran’s or family members for
Tele-Health personal counseling sessions. Phone, text, email sessions.
Daily availability to each veteran.
At this time, only available to veteran’s who live in Colorado, Texas, Florida, Washington, Iowa, S.Dakota, Nevada, Alaska, Hawaii. Email for more info and pricing: Info@VeteransPsychEvaluations.com
Yes, you can sue the VA for medical malpractice.
VA therapist yanked from clinic in central Arkansas
Left adrift, say vets haunted by war
"Safety was one concern that had risen out of the activities that had taken place at [the] clinic.
The other concern was the lack of therapeutic benefit of those groups," McClain
said in an interview. "I have been a psychiatrist myself for 20 years, and I have never
seen a support group that functioned in the fashion that this activity represented."
Jim Strickland is a nationally known advocate for veterans
and a member of the Stateside Legal Advisory Board.
They're Your Benefits

service in our American military. Let us help you to help yourself.
If you take Prilosec or Zantac for acid reflux, a beta blocker for high blood pressure,
or Xanax for anxiety, you may be increasing your risk of depression. More than 200
common medications sold in the U.S. include depression as a potential side effect.
Sometimes, the risk stems from taking several drugs at the same time. Now, a new
study finds people who take these medicines are, in fact, more likely to be depressed.
Investigation determined the pathologist was deemed "unsafe to work" and was
removed and subsequently fired. Parks said the pathologist saw 19,794 patients.
Letters are being sent out to all of them, or to their family members. The hospital is
responsible for 53,000 patients each year, he said. Of the more than 19,000
patients involved, 5,250 have died since 2005, and those deaths are under review.

and Retention, but Challenges Remain
GAO-18-623T: Published: Jun 21, 2018. Publicly Released: Jun 21, 2018
We have long expressed concern about the Veterans Health Administration’s ability to
ensure that it has the staff to meet veterans' needs.
This testimony is based on our 2017 report on its physician staffing challenges.
We found VHA needed to:
* provide additional guidance on how to determine the staff size needed in some specialty areas.
VHA reports this will be done by December.
* comprehensively evaluate its recruitment and retention strategies' effectiveness.
VHA reports taking steps to address this.
* determine the number of contract and trainee physicians at its centers.
VHA says it does not need this information for workforce planning.
"The VA says it will take up to six weeks to refund the June check missing because of this.
They said that's the way it was and there's no way to get me any help and I should call one
of the charities in my area." On May 18, his VA eBenefits account was
compromised and his monthly check redirected to debit cards in California.
Employees at the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System in Montgomery, Ala.,
say they face retaliation when reporting mismanagement or abuse. Alan Hyde is a
veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System.
He served in Operation Desert Storm, where he suffered an in-service leg injury. But it's his
time with the Central Alabama VA, he says, that has left him more rattled, frustrated and angry.
"It's a toxic environment there," Hyde says. "And I feel sorry for the veterans."
Divorce has ruined my life and nobody will help, what can I do?
What do I do if my disabled rating percentage should be more than the VA claims?
Is there a chance that a CUE (Clear and Unmistakable Error) claim based on 3.156(c) will be approved?
Does 100% schedular rating restrict me from employment? What about 100% TDIU rating?
How do I appeal a claim of aid and attendance?
From the desk of Drew Early, Veterans Law Attorney
This is the Due Process challenge that was appealed to the Federal Circuit, after being denied at the CAVC. Bottom line—VA doesn’t get a pass any more in mandamus petitions (a petition that is brought in this context seeking a court order to force VA to act on a disability appeal). The Federal Circuit cannot understand why VA appeals take so long and don’t see a basis for it.
I particularly draw the reader’s attention to Judge Moore’s concurring opinion that really speaks to the Federal Circuit’s concern about unwarranted delays in VA appeals. Of note, one of the appellants in the case passed away during the course of proceedings—the judges noted that.
Noteworthy is the fact that this case was brought on a pro bono basis by concerned attorneys and the attorneys were from some of the best firms in the country. They have done a lot to spur due process along for our Nation’s veterans and family members.
VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
"To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan."
If the structures completely block the throat, air can’t flow to the lungs at all. This is
called apnea (meaning “no breathing”). Since the lungs aren’t getting
fresh air, the brain tells the body to wake up just enough to tighten the
muscles and unblock the air passage. With a loud gasp, breathing begins again.
“It was so caustic; the smoke, you would wake up in the morning, and it would just choke you,” said Kenney, who is now 53 and lives in the Killeen area. Yet the VA refuses to admit his cancer could
be related to exposure, consistently stating in his exams that his illness is “not related to a specific exposure event/environmental hazard experienced during actuve (sic) service in Southwest Asia.” While
he was still in the Army, Kenney had suspicious masses on his lymph nodes removed. Biopsies on the masses led the VA later to link their type to the cancer that was detected two years after he retired.
Parent Facility: Safety and Cleanliness TJC requires hospitals to identify and resolve environmental deficiencies, hazards, and unsafe practices and to keep furnishings and equipment safe and in good repair. This ensures a clean and safe healthcare environment. The OIG noted problems with cleanliness and maintenance of overhead structures throughout the parent Facility. Of the seven patient care areas inspected, two had soiled furniture, all had dirty ventilation grills, five had dirty floors, four had stained ceiling tiles, and one had missing ceiling tiles. Environmental Management Service (EMS) housekeeping staff were not following room cleaning procedures, and EMS supervisors did not consistently identify or address these deficiencies during Facility EOC rounds.
If you were told that you were going to get an imaging study
(an x-ray or similar) and it never happened, this might be why.
